    Either pull the arrow in one of the corners or set it at the top where it tell you the size. Scroll over the size and type in the size you want to cut at and hit enter?

    Yes. "Y" is the height and ""X" is the length. If you set it at holding the parametres, you only have to type in one or the other and it will enlarge or decrease it at the same proportian. If you are looking at the whole shirt but only want the design size then you need to dreaw a rectangle or square and keep enlarging it until it fits the design.
    Hope that helps

    although this comment has no bearing on your question... I hope your not going to make that artwork all squeezed down like that... besides running you art below where it looks good, it's also so stretched that it looks bad... less is more.. at least about 1/3 less in my opinion, for the lettering, and the art should have a perfect circle
